Montevideo Holiday Travel Information

Uruguay
Vibrant, eclectic, and with a rich culture, Montevideo is all at once beachside luxury and cosmopolitan grunge.

I was there for approx 19 months, good time there in carnival, outdoor, best for people who look forward for peace, green. quite expensive, but few places like Colonia, punta del este, cabo polonia are worth visiting.

This is the capital, a port city and the largest city in Uruguay. There is a laid back vibe with nice colonial architecture. We were there on a Sunday so the stores were not open but there is a very large street market that was very colorful. Watch out for pickpockets at the market!
